face to face …
Pegula beat then-teen Swiatek in three sets in Washington, not far from my humble suburban home, in 2019.
Swiatek won in straight sets in Miami and did so again in the Roland Garros quarter-finals.
In fact, Pegula has far more accomplished in doubles than she has in singles, but this is her fourth Grand Slam quarterfinal in two years and third this year.
Swiatek was dominant earlier this year, winning Doha, Indian Wells and Miami on hardcourt, then moving to clay to win in Stuttgart, Rome and Roland Garros. It hasn’t worked since then and it’s lost to danger now Caroline Garcia In her native Poland. In her last tournament, she lost in the round of 16 to Madison Keys.

This is an interesting quarter-final. It is an opportunity for the United States! United States of America! United States of America! (Confederation of Bloggers Neighborhood Guardian Brand) To have another semi-final at the US Open after that Francis Tiafoe He became the first American man to reach that stage in 16 years.
Beau will be here soon. Meanwhile, here’s Tomaini Karaiol on how the other women’s quarter-final match was today:
Under the pressure of formidable Arthur Ashe Stadium and with plenty of opportunity for whoever was brave enough to seize it, Aryna Sabalenka’s devastating ball shot was in full flow as she returned to the semi-finals of the US Open for the second year in a row, edging out top seed Karolina Pliskova. Previously, 6-1, 7-6 (4) to reach the Grand Slam semi-finals of her career.
In a tournament where only one Grand Slam champion remained in the quarter-finals, Iga SwiatekA few contenders arrived in a desperate bid to win their first Grand Slam title. Pliskova, ranked 22, reached her first Grand Slam final at the 2016 US Open, eventually climbing to number one in the world. While she has been a regular presence in the late stages of the Grand Slam tournaments ever since, she is still searching for her first championship. nickname.
While Ash Barty consolidated her dominance last year, Sabalenka for most of the season was directly behind her and ranked second in the world rankings, enjoying the best season of her career. After capturing the WTA Tour titles but falling hard at the Grand Slam, she reached back-to-back semi-finals at Wimbledon and the US Open, but never went further.
Now trying to take the next step in her career, it was fifth seed Sabalenka who came off sharp and determined to rise to the occasion. She served well, crushing the ball and adding energy and vitality to every stroke. With its prosperity, Pliskova struggled hard. Her feet were rooted in place, and her service games were punctuated by double flaws. Pliskova ended a nightmare in the first set with one winner and 15 unforced errors, winning her only ace.
Pliskova improved a lot during the second set. The group began to serve better, standing in front of Sabalenka in the narrow moments of her dispatch. But in the bigger moments, Sabalenka was unplayable. She played a great tie-breaker, utterly destroying the ball but also combining her formidable muscular strength with precise touches; Great shots, one sweet shot, and one great shot in the tiebreak.
All this year, double faults have hampered Sabalenka’s game but at every seemingly significant moment, Sabalenka slammed the second transmission at easily over 100mph. After scoring 23 double-faults in one game earlier this summer, I scored three fouls in Ashe. And it finished with one final moment of glory, a forehand that steals the scene with a winning serve from the first serve going forward.
